....and while I'm quoting others, I might as well link to this excellent article on Jerry's banjo-playing. (I'd cut & paste but it's simply too long!)

Very illuminating, if any of you haven't seen it....

"Sometimes when I was lost in reverie backstage at a Dead show, when the drift of his musical storytelling would just flow into me, I could hear him test some risky daredevil jump echoing those old fiddle-style banjo arpeggios. He would suggest it, meander around it, go somewhere else for awhile to rest and think about it, then come back…pounce!—and go for it."

Great read man - Thanks

reminds me of that headless dude in ventura 1983... Wonder if he plays with The Sleepy Hollow Hog Stompers ?

I thought that was an EXCELLENT description too! Right on with respect to the early era tunes, such as 11/oone/ce (those three especially, eh???).

Damn fine read.

Thanks LiA.

Very informative read. Thanks LiA.

I have a recording of Jerry introducing the Kentucky Colonels at a Monterey Bluegrass Fest. He sounds young and excited.
